According to FishbowlLA, the parent owner of the Los Angeles Weekly, the Voice Media Group, has just sold both the San Francisco and the Seattle Weekly newspapers. This brings them down to 11 from 13 newspapers.
Now, are they just narrowing the focus of their newspaper empire? Or are they cashing out on their investment? If they are just narrowing their focus, it would seem odd to dump newspapers in two of the major tech/media cities in the country.
